SOURCE: IDLE PROBLEM

Here are some of the causes of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

SOURCE: surging and high idle on 94 silverado

If your idle is going from 500rpms to 1000rpm's fluctuating at and idle your EGR valve is probably carbon up and needs cleaned or replace.

SOURCE: 99 chevy silverado running rough and stalling.

the problem you are discribing would lead me to belive your fuel filter is clogged which is a simple fix 3 dollar part at any part store or on the worse hand your fuel pump itself could be weak you can open the gas tank cover and have another person turn the truck key to the on position without going far enough to start you will hear a faint whining noise if it is going bad or a louder noise if it is fine Good Luck

Hows do I fix the high surging idle on my 2000 chevy silverado?


I know this sounds nuts but I just did this to my Granddaughters truck and it works. Turn the key off open the door for 90 seconds close the door turn the key on but do not start the truck, press the gas pedal to the floor three times and shut the key off and wait 10 or 15 seconds and start the truck. This will reset the idle air control and should let the truck idle ok.

Sluggish when pressing gas pedal


My guess is a compression problem - which could be caused by something simple and cheap to fix or as serious as a new head gasket.

Car will not start without pressing gas pedal to keep idle speed up. If I keep idle at 900 RPM or higher it runs as long as foot is on gas pedal. It then stalls out when I take foot off gas pedal. No...


Have the idle bypass valve checked, also called idle air control valve.
If that valve is stuck in the closed position, it's not allowing the fuel to bypass the throttle plate to keep it idling, resulting in stalling, but will keep engine running if the pedal is pushed down.

your fuel filter might be old and clogged. try replacing it. if it is and not enough fuel can get through, the engine will stall when you let more air in (step on the gas pedal).

Could be fuel filter, idle air control valve, or idle control sensor, or a vacuum leak.
